Welcome to Day 2 of a prayer devotional written by Teaching Pastors Lloyd Shadrach and Rob Sweet of Fellowship Bible Church. Today’s theme is “Listen to God.”
Do you love HEARING the Word of God wash over you too? It has SUPERPOWERS over our biggest fears. Not saying our fears completely go away… but Scripture does make them take their proper size.
I’ve wrestled with anxiety since I was a little girl. Sometimes, I’m perplexed by the fact that now, after having walked with Jesus for nearly 4 decades, I can still feel afraid. The fear is there, EVEN though I know our Lord is in CONTROL. I believe wholeheartedly, He IS in control… and today’s devotional reminds us of this truth and the basis on which it stands.
But still, it’s there… the fear. It’s a “both/and’ thing for me. Lord, I know what You say about You, but I’m still a little scared. Lord, I believe; help my unbelief.
The difference now is, the fear is no longer consuming me, bossing me around. I’m not camping in it anymore. I confess it, lay it at His feet and it loses its power over me every time I do that- even if it’s 20 times a day, as in recent days….
This is my humble offering- it’s not quite like hearing Lloyd Shadrach’s voice, but it helps me. I pray this devotional comforts you as it has me. Come back tomorrow to hear Day 3.
